View Full Version : Newton and OS X
Nov 16, 2002, 12:41 AM
Well, I have a Newton MessagePad 130.. and I have a palm too, so I am not too worried about it, but I want to be able to use the MessagePad with OSX and download things to it. I have a serial usb adapter, but 9 does not like to run on my comp.. is there a way to go about doing this? did anyone write a program for newton X?? FYI, It's an iMac G4/800 15" Superdrive, if that makes a diff.

There have been some efforts made. Search google or versiontracker, and you may be happy with what you find!

Thanks for the info- what should I search as? I am going to try "newton x" and stuff like that... versiontracker is always awesome... I will tell everyone if I find anything later!

I didn't know you could use a newton with X... i've been wanting to get a 2100 but was holding off... perhaps i'll get myself one for christmas... ;)

You can even sync the MP2x000 with iTunes (http://www.pixell.net/doppler/newton/). Impressive.

Another Newton OS X sync utility. Very impressive.
